Kenya's focus turns to saving Ruto at the ICC

17 November 2015, 19:11 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto needs to be saved from the clutches of the ICC, exactly what Kenya will be looking at doing this week at the Hague.

The country's key legal and diplomatic minds will grace the Assembly of State Parties ASP meeting which kicks off Wednesday at the Hague in a bid to save Ruto.

Kenya is especially keen on Article 68 which gives headway on the use of recanted statements and evidence from witnesses in the case pending against Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang.

Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed said that the application of Rule 68 adopted during the 12th ASP  in 2013 has been violated.

The rule allows the court to use recanted evidence in the trial.

" We are here to restate that rule will not be applied to the case against the Deputy President and Sang. That was the agreement during the ASP in 2013," she said.

Kenya has cooperated with the court and we expect that our concerns will be addressed," she added.

Other African states as well as Ruto's own team is also appealing the use of the statements.

The ICC granted prosecutor Fatou Bensouda's appeal to have the use of statements from 6 witnesses which had earlier been disregarded.

5 of the 6 had stated that they had lied in their statements while the sixth refused to testify.

The ICC believes that the 6 were coerced into changing their stance on the statements.
